Bluepoint Games is working on a new project and we can’t help but think it is a Demon’s Souls remaster. A few months ago, during a GDC presentation, the studio talked about a next project that goes “well beyond what they thought possible on Shadow of the Colossus”.
Last year, we all got impressed with what Bluepoint Games managed to do with the remaster of Shadow of the Colossus. The developers claim that their next project is even more promising. If Shadow of the Colossus is a remake then their next project is a “re-envisioning” that goes beyond what they thought was possible with their last project. We know that it is already in development and it will be available for Playstation 5. This looks like the perfect time for it to be Demon’s Souls and send the fanbase into a frenzy.
To get a clear picture of what their new project may be, their website clearly states that they’re working on yet another remaster. This is on par with possible remaster on Demon’s Souls. It says:
Our team at Bluepoint Games is pushing further into remaking another classic. Want to be part of recreating something special, a game millions of gamers love and eagerly anticipate?
Just as we narrowed the projects down to just remasters, the opportunities widen even more. There are so many Sony titles out there that deserve a remaster. In a poll on ResetERA, fans voted for the most likely title to be remastered by Bluepoint Games. As expected, first came the Demon’s Souls remaster followed by Metal Gear Solid and Legend of Dragoon. To narrow the options, even more, we took some time looking through the studio’s job listings. They can be pretty insightful. In fact, we find out that they are not working on a project that they already did. With that in mind, Metal Gear Solid is out. One of the listings states:
Since inception in 2006, Bluepoint Games has had the privilege to revitalize many critically acclaimed franchises. God of War, Ico, Shadow of the Colossus, Metal Gear Solid, Flower, Gravity Rush, Titanfall, Uncharted, and again on our latest, unannounced projects.
Let’s get realistic. The Legend of Dragoon and Syphon Filter are indeed popular games but they’re not that popular that millions of fans will be anticipating for them. Demon’s Souls is and will be the number one choice for a remaster, especially now that its spiritual successor has its own.
For the time being, we have zero indications that this is actually happening. If this is true though, get ready for a huge battle between it and Elden Ring, FromSoftware’s next RPG.
